Dogwood Blooms on a Sewer Drain



The last remains of the dogwood blooms remains on this this storm sewer lid.

Interestingly, the storm lid is made in India and used on our streets here. I can't help to think of the closed down foundry in Lynchburg and how a cast iron lid could have been made there.

Blue Ridge Parkway: Trees through the Fog

From the valley you least suspect the fog that envelopes the mountains. As you drive along the Parkway, soon you just cannot see in front of you.

But there is beauty.

Natural Bridge Virginia


A short drive from Lynchburg and you will find yourself at Natural Bridge. Thomas Jefferson once owned this wonder and he has carved his name and date about a 1/3 of the way up the rock.
